Ecologicamente corretto: mente e percezione in Austin

  • Abstract

Informations and abstract


"Sense and Sensibilia" is the less known among John Austin's works. It seems worth to stress its tie to a couple of contemporary theories of perception, first of all the ecological approach to perception. Austin's concern with the context of ordinary language puts him very close to some epistemological principles of this approach: 1) the specificity of the behavioural environment, 2) the intersubjectivity of perceptual world, 3) the possibility of a description of that world, 4) the veridical character of our perceptual experience. On the contrary, the computational approach shares with sense-data theory an indirect concept of perception.
